A Midsummer Adventure

The impressive sunset

called to the man

having a vacuous smile

he floated away from the land

Foolish things

this takes the cake

an adventure

may be a mistake

Floating farther

trying to touch the sun

to reach the horizon

before the day is done

Margarita was part of it

giving him false courage

kicking his feet

ignoring the current

The moon rose

his mission had failed

someone called the coast guard

rescue detailed

Waking up

the guard opened the jail

with a hangover

he had made bail

Now lying in a hammock

waking from a pleasant dream

traveling the world

with margaritas and ice cream
